Glad to hear it, only problem I had with mine was a small S shaped spring inside the reciver broke & needed replaced, but the gun was a great shooter.

Have to say from the ones I've seen they look to be well built, but I dont know how they will compare to the compation, all the newer ML guns have come along way compared to my old 1980 something hawkens.

I have a Traditions Kentucky Long Rifle. A friend of mine helped me take it apart and we put it as "antique" as possible. Buckhorn sights, walnut stain, browned the barrel. Shoots .490 ball and patch like a dream.
I use to do fur trade era historical rendezvous, so I love the original black powder guns. Get that ole hawkin out if ya still got it.
